This is a short accessible textbook that I highly recommend. Each chapter provides ideas on how to incorporate the strategies in classrooms throughout the core disciplines, foreign language classrooms, and electives. The textbook was in good condition, arrived really early. Will definitely use them again, I'm very satisfied.

Summary

Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work, Third Edition, gives teachers and teacher candidates the tools they need to help all students work toward mastery of literacy and comprehension of content area texts.

Practical, straightforward, and affordable, this guide is packed with real classroom examples of specific teaching strategies in action and features a focus on working with English language learners and struggling readers, ideas for using different technologies to enhance teaching, an up-to-date research base of current sources of support and additional reading, and an excellent assessment chapter showing how various formal and informal assessments can be used in the classroom.

''This is a highly practical and useable book for a range of teachers and teacher candidates. Across the book, what I find most helpful are the descriptions of actual lessons. Unlike most content area methods books on the market, this book seems to include real examples. You get the feeling that the authors spend much time in high school classrooms and have a good feel of what’s currently happening and what works. Especially valuable are examples of the strategies across different subject areas.'' - Gay Ivey — James Madison University

''The various topics are applied to many different content areas, so that nearly every teacher is likely to find a strategy that he or she can use. Each chapter contains helpful graphics, useful concrete examples, and content-based strategies for implementing the various strategies in the classroom. The book is very practical, easy to read, and well organized. Information is easy to find and the busy practicing or pre-service teacher would no doubt find it to be a handy reference.'' - Margot Kinberg, National University

''The information is theoretically quite sound. It provides the students with a wealth of strategies to facilitate comprehension.'' - Karen Ford, Ball State University
